Industrial measurement experts, Mantracourt are celebrating the success of their Strain Gauge Amplifier, a product that is now seeing service across the world and enjoys acclaim in such sectors as offshore engineering, construction, process control and automotive testing. Since its development 10 years ago, and having been updated and modified over that time, Mantracourt have shipped over 15,000, with sales still holding up.
Mantracourt’s Strain Gauge Amplifier (SGA) is a high performance signal conditioner for single or multiple strain gauge bridge sensors such as load, force, pressure and torque. The SGA offers a wide bandwidth and a wide input signal range and can be powered from AC or DC supplies, providing excitation for up to 4 x 350 ohm strain gauge bridges. The conditioned output signal can be selected from 0-20mA, 4-20mA, 0-10V, 0-5V, ±5V or ±10V. Options include isolated DC supply, DIN rail mount and an OEM module.
"We feel very proud that so many engineers and scientists around the world have come to trust the SGA," said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing Manager at Mantracourt. "The SGA has really helped spread the Mantracourt brand and reflects our passion for developing effective and reliable industrial measurement systems."
The SGA Strain Gauge Amplifier is supplied in a waterproof IP65 NEMA4 bulkhead mountable case and is available with AC or DC power supply options. There is also a digital version with set point relays, communications and display options.
